Taliban kill 27 in Afghan force

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Twenty-seven members of the Afghan forces have been killed by the Taliban, police and the government said on Monday.

The Islamist movement reached an agreement with the United States last month paving the way for the withdrawal of US and foreign forces and peace negotiations with the Afghan government, but differences persist over the first step, which consists of an exchange of prisoners.

No ceasefire has been concluded with government forces and fighting continues, but the Taliban have not announced the launch of their traditional spring offensive.

The latest clashes took place Sunday in the provinces of Takhar (North-East), Zabul (South), Helmand (South) and Baghlan (North), according to the authorities, which report at least 13 deaths in the ranks of the Taliban.
